5. What support will there be for my child’s overall well being?

Both the Infant and Junior Schools value all pupils’ well-being. A Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) curriculum is followed in both schools. This gives pupils the chance to think about and discuss issues such as friendship, feelings and how to behave in a range of circumstances.Pupils who are naturally anxious or emotionally vulnerable due to family circumstances may find it difficult to learn. Teachers and support staff will discuss any issues with you and we will work together to help your child.

This may involve time in a nurture group, lunchtime club or after-school activity. Some pupils may have individualised behaviour programmes which include “Good Books” or stickers.

The class teacher has responsibility for the well-being of every child in their class. If you have any concerns, speak to the class teacher first. If further support is needed, the class teacher will speak to the SENCO.

Prescribed medicine can be administered in school with signed parental permission and with the agreement of the headteacher.

There are nominated first aiders in school and several members of staff have first aid training. If your child has significant medical needs, you will need to speak to the SENCO to discuss how we can best support your child. This might include drawing up a Health Care Plan, and seeking advice or training from medical specialists.
